    It takes balls to ask "stupid questions" sometimes.

    I was explaining the range of an assault rifle and machine gun once. A kid put his hand up and asked if after 400 meters the rifle bullets stopped and fell to the ground. Dumb question for anyone who knows about guns but he honestly didn't know so he asked. Everyone else laughed at him, only it was my class and I'm the only one who makes jokes so they go to spend the weekend getting yelled at and marching around like idiots instead of going to the beach.

    As long as you're not trolling I don't think anyone in the armory will bust your balls (well to an extent :) ) for asking an honest question. Beats people acting like they know everything, right?

    I only have experience on the C7 and a little bit of plinking on a buddies AR-15, but I was under the impression that the C7 was pretty similar to a M16A2 performance wise. Is there really that much of a difference?

    I remember reading there was a ton of differences on the inside between the two. Dimaco improved a lot of things, I'll do some research and PM you the info or post it here.

    Speed reloads with an AK aren't much slower if you know how to do them.

    The advantage is that the AK setup is much sturdier.
    I'm not giving you my opinion, I'm telling you how it is.
    Can't decide which evil black rifle to buy? My thoughts.

    Since I'm a lefty, the main thing I'd love to see copied from the C7/8 series is the ambidextrous magazine release. Not having that **** slows down my mag changes a bit. Other than that, I can't really think of a single weapon I'd rather have than my SOPMOD II. Besides an AC-130U.

    hmmm, just thought I'd point out, that sometimes when you have old mags, they tend to get stuck inside, so you have to pull on it, and the magazine won't fall as smooth as you want it to.

    but with proper training, ducking for cover, changing the mag, and renewing fire, never took more than 3-4 seconds. that's back when I was on top of my game, haven't been at it for a while, so might take me a bit more now.

    as for the AK, I hadn't had much experience with it, did have plenty with the Galil, which is the Israeli version of it (not as good in my opinion, shoots 5.56 and not 7.62), the mag change always took me a bit more time, and was less smooth, but I did have a lot more experience with the M16.

    maybe I should point out, this was all in the range, as I was a shooting instructor in the IDF for roughly 2.5 years, but from my info, a well trained soldier takes no more time in a real situation...

    Hey Cassius,

    I actually took lock-tight and put it on the "left handed" magazine release on the C7 and C8 I used. We (right handed shooters) were finding that anytime you rested the rifle across the front of you something sooner or later would press against the mag release just enough so that when you brought the weapon up the mag would hit the ground. Do you ever get that problem with shooting left handed? (hitting the mag release by accident)

    [I also took a file to the top of my receiver, my after market scope wouldn't fit so I had to do some carving. Little black magic marker and it's just like new ]

    I haven't run into that issue as of yet, but I've been warned about it before. My kit is set up in a manner that kind of keeps the mag assist from hitting anything, but I'll definitely let you know if I have an issue in the future. Assuming it doesn't get me shot . . .
